[Photo credit to Lucas R. on Yelp.com] Um I think the folks in Mai must have been partying the night before I visited and had a serious hangover... They forgot about the food in the trays at all...!
The pork was dried up at the tips, tough and the sauce was mundane... I don't eat tortilla so I went for the carnitas plate with rice and beans... Let me put it this way, the little yellowish rice was worse than what you'd get as a side from El Pollo Loco, and the beans were just plain Mexican-normal, nothing special. They did give me a lot of cilantro in red sauce which kind of made the plate a bit less disappointing but even the red sauce wasn't that impressive at all. I was disheartened. Paid $6.45. I'm so very over it like an ex.
Apparently not all mom and pop places are good. Some are just mom and pop and maybe even aunt and uncle and nephew and niece... but nothing good to my mouth.
